Can you believe that a man in Florida has amassed over $21,000 just by walking his dog? For 10 years he’d venture over to vending machines and car washes to check the change slots. This unusual testimony makes you wonder if dog walking in other places can reap even bigger rewards. Indeed this could be the case if you lived near a construction site. I live near a few of them and I never see casual strollers because people’s imaginations rarely go beyond what they’re used to. Some of you readers live in historic areas and could be finding colonial artifacts. In other areas you could be picking up gemstones. Of course there are the dedicated dog walkers who bring metal detectors wherever they go. Can you imagine what their sheds would contain after 10 years of doing this?
As for me, I live in a very historic area and I wouldn’t mind picking up some nice Civil War coins or bottles to pay the rent. But honestly I have more of a passion for gemstones which unfortunately, aren’t easily found in my state of South Carolina. It’s a different story though, for people living in the UK. In that part of the world people can find some really nice amber specimens. New Zealanders on the other hand might stumble across some beautifully green jade stones. I guess the best way to know what to expect in your part of the world is to google the search phrase, “What gem stones are found in _______?“ Hopefully, you will be living amongst at least one of the 10 major types (amber, amethyst, jade, garnet, jet, lapis lazuli, opal, quartz, topaz and turquoise).
Lastly, let’s not forget everyone’s favorite place to walk, which is the beach. If you knew what kind of items are sold on Etsy.com, you would perceive the beach as your most valuable resource hiding in plain sight. Not only is there a constant demand for items related to the sea, if you lost your job, finding things to make ends meet would be the most satisfying part of your day.
